My family is a circus,
a variety of people in one show.
My Mom is the Ringleader
balancing all the acts.
My Dad is the Lion Tamer
controlling all the beasts and keeping order.
Brittany is a tight rope walker
precise and posed in each step.
Tara is a jockey
strong and fierce to ride such horses.
Cary is a clown
inexperienced and always playing around.
And I,
I am the trapeze artist,
an amazing sight to see,
daring to reach new heights.
